Why TV weatherpeople don't wear green on St. Patrick's Day

When they do the weather, they're not actually standing in front of a weather map, but instead a green screen onto which the station projects the maps (they know where to point by looking at a monitor, which gave us the Pete Bouchard Incident). So if they wore green, they'd look like they have parts missing (whatever is covered by the green). Matt Noyes reports:

A few years ago, got a complaint I wasn't wearing green on St. Paddy's Day. So, donned a green cloak & went invisible.

    On WBZ 4 , the weekend weather girl Daniel had green on ,but she didn't use the magical wall, just a big screen tv. Why do the weatherites need to stand in front of that wall anyway ? The new big screen tvs work more better.
